Well, it’s been a little over a month and a half since Jake had his front right leg amputated, due to osteosarcoma and he seems to be doing well so far.

He still gets pretty tired after just hopping from one end of the house to another… but he has a great appetite, is alert, and plays with us and Wolfie in the evenings. He’s been on meloxicam (NSAID and cox-2 inhibitor) for almost a week and a half now. He vomited once, 5 days after starting it, and we put him on daily pepcid AC, and that seems to have stopped that. I haven’t noticed his back legs shaking anymore for the past couple of days, so that’s a good thing. I’m going to have to trim his nails tonite… and hopefully that will help him from sliding too much on our wood and ceramic floors.

He’s just finished his dinner… and hopped all the way into the office to hang out with my while I write in his blog. He is such a sweetheart…


Here’s Jake chewing on his poor squirrely in the kitchen…


Wolfie has his own teddy bear to chew on…


So, that’s the update for now…

    Hey Jakes’ Mom,

    Like Polo, Jake wants to please his mommy. I know Polo’s good-to-go when he’s burping and lying on his back with all threes flailing (also known around here as Tweeving). These guys are doing well, so we should think about a Florida Tripawds family gathering–all two of us. Good to see Jake is doing well. Polo and Mike

    Wow at a month and a half since surgery already! I remember finding your blog and reading it. It was what gave us strength going into Solo’s surgery.
    Good luck in the toe nail trimming department. It definitely helps out on the slick hardwood floors. We trim the hair between Solo’s toes too – that also helps with the traction. Looking forward to the updated pictures!

    Solo and Christina

    Seriously dude, a month? You’re ROCKIN’! Keep it up.

    How’d the pawdicure go? I hate that more than anything.

  5. Keep up the good work Jake! We hope to see lots of water pictures since we will be posting lots of snow pictures! We are a little jealous of your weather. My family makes me wear shirts when I go outside because it is so cold!
    I hope you master the wood and ceramic floors, we have rugs covering most of our hardwood so I don’t slip.

    Glad to hear Jake is doing better!! I know we had to cover walking paths through most of the tiled areas for Shilo. It doesn’t look the best having a rugged trail through the kitchen but, she sure appreciates it… 🙂

    Speaking of nail clipping, we just had shilo’s done while they put her under for her x-rays. Her’s were getting pretty long too. We could never do it before, she HATES the clipping noise. She even stops us from clipping our own nail, just hilarious. I think she thinks might hurt us or something??? Anyway get those nails trimmed all nice it sure helped her get around a little better!!

    Can’t wait to see the fun picks, he is always so photogenic.
